Electronic books/E-books

Posted Posted in Artigos

Recently, and suddenly… No more than suddenly… this new thing called “electronic book” has appeared.  And the whole world was faced with the real possibility of reading without paper being necessary. Strange thing, some people thought… After all, since man started to use papyrus in Ancient Egypt, the written word has become an integral and […]

Author-Editor Relationship

Posted Posted in Artigos

Author-publisher relationship: at the same time, it’s one of the most important and challenging in publishing. I’m lucky because I’ve always worked in publishing, which helped me to know very well about that universe and the laws governing the world of books. So, when I started writing, I’ve known how it worked. Today, I know […]

Writing for Adults

There are excellent writers in my country, but we still have a long way to go, inside and outside our borders. Even in Brazil, where we have great writers, many are unknown to the general public. At this point, we turn to the issue of lack of reading habit, also accompanied by the lack of […]

Writing for children requires great care because a little slip is fatal; any wrong information, any phrase can generate great dubious […]

Incidentally, I open a parenthesis here and pay my sincere respects to him, Julio Emílio Braz, who, […]

About literature in Brazil

I don’t have any intention of writing a long essay here about the direction of Brazilian Literature. I want to explain some personal opinions on this subject, which is linked to my experience in publishing. Despite all difficulties, despite our real and still weak potential of reading is still far from ideal, advances are happening, […]

Why literature?

Posted Posted in Artigos

About writing… I discovered very early that writing is my gift. I’m a big consumer of books, and now I can appreciate how much I’ve learned from them throughout my life. My first literary exercises began early, at age 14. I wrote poetry, short stories, and chronicles and I recognize that the encouragement of my […]
